I doubt it, I got the USB Product ID for the K-70 included in the Pentax library - there's no KP USB Product ID at the moment. The USB Product ID can be found if you connect your KP to a linux machine and type lsusb at the command prompt - then it shows USB Vendor and Product ID as ID vvvv:pppp.
Send the numbers to Marcus Meissner, meissner (at) suse.de

That's the first step, then Andras Salamon most likely needs to update PKTriggerCord - a Windows/Linux program able to remote control your Pentax camera, you can download it here and test it on your KP: pktriggercord.melda.info/
It can be done, the question is the timeframe.
I use Stellarmate on a Raspberry Pi together with my K-70, it does require that I set exposure time and ISO on the camera before I start shooting, it cannot be set from KStars yet. Otherwise it works.

My ASI120 mini works just fine with Stellarmate on an RPi 3. I use it as a guidecam.

How many of you use a case with a cooling fan and also confirm adequate power supply


I have the RPi 4b ps and a case with a cooling fan/heatsinks on cpu, usb controller and ram.
There’s quite a difference between active and no cooling, check this video: youtu.be/e6mWImsF9iI

I'm trying to figure out why my VK-162 GPS fails to work with 1.4.4, but works fine on 1.4.3. It does connect, then nothing further happens. On 1.4.3 I get a GPS fix within a couple of seconds.
The 1.4.4 GPSD log tells me nothing, I've tried to install Wireshark to see what's being transmitted on the USB - but no success (access rights etc.).
Any suggestions? (troubleshooting/logs to check etc.)

@AstroNerd, have you had a GPS connected (gpsd driver)? Mine connects, but detects no signal from the gps, no gps fix, it only takes a couple of seconds with 1.4.3.

I know what you mean AstroNerd, I had the same "moment" when the UI was changed. I just can't see any menu on the screendump you uploaded in this thread, that's why I replied with the same from my iPad with menus in the left hand side of the screen :-)
Other systems does offer a possibility to change between mobile skin and full site, I prefer the full site UI, but this is ok if I have to prioritize between INDI/Ekos/Stellarmate and forum UI updates ;-)

I’m also using an iPad, I have the menu just above the “Indi library v1.8.1 released”:

Have I been dreaming? I know you know better, but I'm 99,9% sure that I've adjusted the offset by entering the number in the UI, but I can see from your Youtube tutorials Jasem, that I'm rather 100% wrong :-)
The offset is adjusted automatically based on the location?

That is strange, this is a screen dump of my Pi4 running Kstars 3.3.6, the offset is inherited from an older version (the one included in the first RPi 4 Stellarmate release) where it was possible to adjust the offset:

In previous versions of Kstars it was possible to enter UTC offset in EKOS when using a gps (gpsd driver), that is not possible anymore (version 3.3.4 & 3.3.6).
Is there any other way to adjust the offset? It doesn’t make sense to use a gps if it’s not possible.

This guy did some heat tests on the RPi4: youtu.be/AVfvhEJ9XD0
Dew shouldn’t be an issue, the Pi temperature is too high for that to happen.
